For children, there will be the much loved Bounce Castle, Bungee Jump and Face painting. The community feel will be enhanced by English Harbour Radio who will be broadcasting live from the event.
 
Each year their partners, Pedigree distributed by Hutchinson (Antigua) Ltd. roll out tons of Pedigree product for the winners. This year Davidson Charles of Hutchinson’s wanted to do something extra from Pedigree, so a special Pedigree class was included with additional prizes for the Pedigree class winner.

The show will be promoted through local media, there is a tv and radio commercial available. Anais Graindorge who is handling IT for the event said "We hope to have a much stronger online presence this year and are planning online cross promotions with Hutchinson’s and their retail partners".
